ASME Digital Collection, ASME Standards

ASME produces journals, conference proceedings, ebooks, and codes and standards in the fields of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences.

This resource page is associated with the consortial offer from Consortia Canada. Two different resource are available under this offer: the Digital Collection, and ASME's codes and standards. The following product descriptions are from the ConCan website.

ASME Digital Collection

With 30 journals, 185 eBooks and hundreds of conference proceedings, the collection houses the most current and relevant content in mechanical engineering and related engineering fields, such as medical device research, energy resources, and nuclear engineering. The collection also includes past research, such as ASME’s Journal Archive, which dates back to 1960. 


The ASME Journal Program has been established to further the progress of science through the sharing of the latest engineering research. Each ASME Journal title publishes the highest quality peer-reviewed literature in their respective field. The professionally curated content includes the history of mechanical engineering research as well as the cutting-edge discoveries being made today.

Conference Proceedings

ASME sponsors more than 30 conferences per year and publishes approximately 100 proceedings volumes annually. Conference topics encompass the entire spectrum of subject areas of interest to engineering. Individual papers from 2000 to the present are currently available through the ASME Digital Collection. Normally, current conference proceedings are offered in one package and back files from 2000 to 2007 are offered in a separate package.


The ASME Press eBooks Package currently includes 185 new and classic eBooks from 1993 to present day. The collection adds 15-20 new titles per year. ASME eBooks support ASME’s most popular international standards publications, such as the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME-BPVC), as well as concise, scholarly monographs in subjects such as bioengineering, nanotechnology, and energy sustainability.  

ASME Standards

ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. Starting with the first issuance of its legendary Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code in 1914, ASME's codes and standards have grown to nearly 600 offerings currently in print. These offerings cover a breadth of topics, including pressure technology, nuclear plants, elevators / escalators, construction, engineering design, standardization, and performance testing. ASME develops voluntary standards that enhance public safety, health, and quality of life as well as facilitate innovation, trade, and competitiveness. ASME standards are accepted for use in more than 100 countries around the world.
